Meet Anara Rysyl

2 posts in this topic

Lieutenant Anara Rysyl is the Deltan operations officer on board the Sutherland.  Like all Deltans, she produces a pheromone that acts as a very strong sexual attractant and aphrodisiac.  Prolonged exposure to this pheromone can also produce a reaction akin to addiction, hence the requirement of all Deltans entering Starfleet to either take the Oath of Celibacy where they promise to abstain from sexual relations with non-Deltans or to accept the regular injection of hormones which act to suppress the Deltan's natural pheromone production.  While this permits the Deltan to enjoy a physical relationship with a non-Deltan, it does have a downside:  many Deltans complain that it dulls the senses somewhat--especially during sex.  Younger Deltans, including Anara, are resentful at having to choose either option.  They argue that most of the effects of so-called "pheromone addiction" are overstated, the result more of legend and holovid lore than reality and that the Oath belongs to an earlier, more prudish era and that the inhibitor injections are an unwelcome invasive procedure.

Anara is generally well-liked by the Sutherland crew and is easily one of the more popular members of the crew.  She has a generally friendly personality and enjoys art and music--especially, oddly enough, Classical Vulcan.  During the course of the series, she will also begin a long-term relationship with the Sutherland's first officer, Commander Christopher Hobson.  An elegant and sensuous woman, Anara Rysyl is a true pleasure to write.

Well I'll have to say is that it is good to see the Deltan race back in Starfleet even with the restrictions that they have chosen to deal with issues of recreation and relaxation. All in all a good officer to help out in a jam during an away mission....  ;)
